CMC Continues to Rack Up Awards for Sustainability

We are happy to announce another successful achievement in sustainable multifamily management practices here at Corcoran Management! McNamara House, an affordable apartment community in Allston was honored by the Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR and received a Certification for Superior Energy Efficiency. McNamara House is just one of the growing number of Corcoran communities that are being recognized by government agencies for a commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency.



Along with Parkside Commons, The Commons at SouthField, Canterbury Towers and 50 West Broadway, McNamara House is recognized for a number of recent upgrades and overhauls to increase efficiency and keep costs down. Some of the improvements include fitting the community with LED lights, low-flow water fixtures, and the addition of a condensing boiler for more efficient heating. The heating system’s new ability to use discharged waste in the form of steam to provide recyclable heat for residents is a groundbreaking improvement, especially for a building as old as McNamara House.



As educational opportunities for sustainable maintenance and construction continue to become more relevant, Corcoran will be on the front lines for promoting these initiatives!
